The candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) for the Osun West Senatorial election slated for July 8, this year, Hon Ajibade Falade, has said he will win the election, having being a grassroots politician in the area all his life.
Falade, who said he had won election as a member of the House of Representatives between 2007 and 2011 in four of the ten local councils where the election would hold, stated that he was the most qualified for the election.
“I have served in the House of Representatives for four years and I served in various committees including Water Resources, Aviation and others and I have the experience in the act of law-making and I am a grassroots politician as I served as the Chairman of Ejigbo Local Government Council in Osun State during the regime of late Gen Sani Abacha,” he said.
Falade, who said he recently defected from PDP to SDP said it was easy because of the working relationship between the Senator Markafi faction of PDP and SDP.
